Candle Vessels: All You Need to Know

Looking to add a touch of personality to your candles? Candle vessels are among the best options.

In this blog post, we will discuss what they are, how they work, and the different types that are available. 

What are Candle Vessel Decals?

Candle vessel decals are a great way to personalise your candles and make them unique. They are made of organic ink that can feature a hot foil stamp, which can be applied to the surface of the candle vessel, or the jar.

The decal is printed on the candle vessel through an interesting process. First, the print with the carrier paper is placed on the candle vessel in water, then the carrier paper is removed and smoothed down. The decal is then cooked at 170℃ for around 30 minutes. After cooling, the peel coat is removed by hand and is discarded. The vessel is then decorated. 

Types of Decorations Used

When doing decals for candle vessels, the preferred method is using organic ink. Organic inks have a limitless colour palette. For example, bright pinks can be achieved with an organic ink, whereas with traditional ceramic inks, these gold-bearing pinks are less vibrant. These vibrant inks can also be supplemented with hot foil effects, smooth metallic pigments, and even luminescent effects. 

The decals can be applied to both glass and metal candle vessels. If it is a glass vessel, the decal is placed on the outside of the glass so that it does not come into contact with the flame.

Why Use a Candle Vessel Decal?

Candle Vessel decals are a great way to add personality to your candles brand. The benefits of using candle decals are that they can provide a more premium product at lower volumes, with full 360 degrees designs achievable. 

You can change the look of your candle vessels without having to create bespoke shapes. They are also compatible with all kinds of spray coatings, thus further enhancing the design effects.
